I wrote in a another post about my dog chewing on her carpal pads. Well one side seems to be doing better, and the other was as well till she opened it up again. The bitter apple has really helped, but I expect the healing wound itches like crazy, and when she just can't stand it anymore she suffers the bad taste in order to chew. BTW, yes, I bought the "non-stinging" kind of apple bitter. I want to try bandaging the pads up so she can't get to them. My first thought is to use a sterile pad along with the ointment du jour, and then what seem to the the animal care version of coban (horse leg wrap etc.). Then I plan to coat the whole thing in apple bitter. I also do realize not to put the wrap on very tight, I've needed coban on my own hand for a few months before, and I know very well how uncomfortable that can be. I've stopped going to the vet for cuts/scrapes/bites on the cats unless it is rally bad, because I know the drill so well there. The cats left things alone after daily irrigating and cleaning. They wanted to piddle on my pillow as pay back, but left the wound alone. No such luck with the dog, I need to be a bit more proactive here, I can't just leave it "open". So is this likely to be a good bandaging method? What has worked with your dogs?
